Remember when last week, HTC did a major tease featuring a new headset with better resolution than the previous models? HTC is increasing the resolution of the dual-OLED displays to 2880 x 1600 (1400 x 1600 per eye, and 615 ppi), a 78 percent increase from the 2160 x 1200 (1080 x 1200 per eye) resolution in the current Vive.
CES appears to have other players in the wireless-VR space, as well, and we'll do our best at Ars to cover or go hands on with any promising VR demos, especially any with the HTC Vive Pro.
The HTC Vive Pro also comes equipped with a new head strap that's not too dissimilar from the revamped strap for the HTC Vive. The Vive Pro now features a dial on the back of the head strap to adjust the headset rather than having to adjust velcro straps.
While we've already seen some of these design changes like integrated headphones in the now shipping Deluxe Audio Strap for Vive, the Vive Pro is built from the ground up with this new strap instead of it being a replacement option. Having stereo cameras on the device have the potential to provide a lot of utility ranging from a stereo view of your surroundings when you are nearing the chaperone boundaries to potential AR applications.
The Vive Pro will also improve the audio experience.
The Vive Pro will be available this quarter as a headset upgrade to existing customers and as a standalone headset to all consumers. This is not believed to be the fabled HTC Vive 2, however. Pricing for both configurations is yet to be announced. HTC's version will employ Intel's WiGig wireless-transmission protocol, as opposed to TPCast's use of a different 60GHz standard.
Vive Wireless Pro Adaptor will be available in Q3 2018. There's no word on when the wireless adapter is going to be available, or how much it will cost. What do we know about that until now? This upcoming adapter leverages Intel's WiGg technology to enable a wireless virtual reality experience with low latency, letting you cut the cord between the Vive and your PC.
